Florida Georgia Line Earns First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 With 'Anything Goes'

U2's 'Songs of Innocence', which was released for free on iTunes last month, is at No. 9 on the chart with 28,000 copies sold in its first commercial week.
Florida Georgia Line tops this week's Billboard 200 with their "Anything Goes". Marking the country duo's first effort to have landed atop the chart, the set which was released earlier this month via Republic Nashville sells 197,000 in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"Anything Goes" is the pair's second album. Their previous LP, 2012's "Here's to the Good Times", was also a success. It reached No. 4 on Billboard 200 and is currently sitting at No. 48. It has spent 98 weeks on the chart with a total of 2.1 million copies sold.

At No. 3, Bob Seger's "Ride Out" debuts with 59,000. That's the rocker's highest debut ever. His previous highest-charting effort was "Like a Rock" that spent four consecutive weeks at No. 3 back in 1986 and "Face the Promise" that arrived at No. 4 in 2006.

Newly-formed duo You+Me consisting of Alecia Moore a.k.a. Pink and Dallas Green a.k.a. City and Colour takes the fourth spot as their debut album "rose ave." opens with 50,000. Barbra Streisand's "Partners" slips two rungs to No. 5 with 40,000.
